Antonella Cumbo

I have been practicing my craft for 14+ years, I strive to give each individual a unique personalized experience. And always keeping up to date on trends and fashion. 

I started my career as a co-op student right out of high school. At the time I didn’t know I wanted to do hair for a living, until one day I sat in on an “updo” class and absolutely fell in love with the art of styling. It was then when I realized that I wanted to make woman feel and look beautiful. Over the years of hairstyling, woman have been afraid to get updos for the fear of not liking it, or ending up with the dreaded “prom hair”. I made it my mission to make sure I offer a unique style of consultation that includes vision crafting, and face shape analysis to determine the best look for their face and body type. This always works. And most often they end up wearing it for a few days!

Alexis Ibero

5 years of experience in the world of hair has launched me into a romance with styling, educating, & expressing myself through the art of what I love most.

Connecting with amazing young women,and who they love most on their special day, offering on-location, licensed, professional hairstyling for the GTA, Prince Edward County and beyond! Texture, & undone, romantic effortless styles fuel my creativity, and make me look forward to every beautiful babe I get to work with. You can also find me behind the chair, as a part-time stylist & employee at Nahids Salon & spa down town Toronto. I am a wife, coffee & pasta addict, hobby seamstress, and lover of all things girly and creative. 

I truly feel so lucky to be living the reality of working my dream job. I 100% feel, down to my bones that I am doing exactly what I was meant to be doing. And I couldn’t see it any other way. I am so excited you are here, & already hoping our paths cross!

AnnimationsMkUp

We are determined to serve our Brides above and beyond a hair styling vendor, to truly exceed all expectations and elevate their Bridal Hair experience. A relaxed and professionally executed wedding morning leads to a beautifully styled Bride, and Bride who feels beautiful fully enjoys her special day with confidence and less stress.

I’m Annika, and I am the owner and lead stylist at AnnimationsMkUp. I received my Cosmetic Techniques and Management Diploma with Honors at Seneca College in 2010 which included a course on Formal Hair Styling, and have trained with Schwarzkopf trained stylists over the years, attending many workshops and classes to hone and develop my techniques. AnnimationsMkUp stylists pride themselves on being able to work with a client’s hair, encouraging it to behave and style with shine and volume that surprises and excites each of our Brides. Creating the appearance of length and volume especially in romantic updos have become a key style we are known for.
We believe each Bride is adorned with an invisible “Mrs.” crown on the day of her wedding, and we are constantly refining our skills and training to ensure that crown sits on the most beautiful head of hair that is designed with the Bride in mind. Our extensive questionnaire and consultation process dives deep into the Bride’s theme, style, her hair’s condition, her vision, and allows us to create a look to not only perfectly tie all of those elements together, but to help each Bride improve her hair care routine and offer services and products to do so, making her vision of her day a reality.  

Beyond the trial and day of styling, we offer booking for Ayurvedic hot oil scalp massage to improve scalp health and hair growth, as well as having stylists on our team who are fully licensed to cut, colour, and treat hair with products such as Olaplex. We also work with highly-regarded and fully licensed extensionists and high-quality extension suppliers to offer our Brides every possible avenue to achieve the look they are going for. 
Additionally, we work with various bridal accessory retailers to assist our Brides with final touches for their look if they so need it.

I specialize in blonding and bridal. Doing hair is my passion. It’s something I crave doing when I’m away from the chair for a long period of time. I feel it is important to continue my education, to keep up with the latest trends, and to use my knowledge to create exactly what my clients are envisioning. I strive to create a true connection with each client, and making them happy is what is most important to me. My goal is to make you feel pampered, relaxed, and like you can be your true self while in my chair. My favourite part about my career is seeing my clients grow. From graduating school, to landing that new job, to having children, or tying the knot with your best friend. It truly is a privilege when my clients ask me to be a part of their big day. Making someone feel beautiful on one of the most important days of their lives is a feeling you almost can’t describe. Hair is such an important part in someone’s life, and being able to make people feel like the best version of themselves is a blessing. Being a stylist is something I wouldn’t change for the world.

Hello! I am Jennesa. Styling hair has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember.

I am the youngest sibling in a large family so I participated in multiple weddings from a young age and getting my hair styled was my favourite part. I always appreciated the stylists who were perceptive and creative and as a result those are the attitudes I bring with me to each session. In elementary school I would get up early just to curl or style my hair before heading to school. I understand the confidence and happiness that comes from a good hair day.

Before pursuing my career as a bridal hairstylist, I attended university and I received my Bachelor of Science Nursing Degree. I completed my program as a nurse and immediately began working towards my passion- bridal hair! My nursing education taught me so much- including the importance of good communication and careful organization, which are skills that I bring with me behind the chair to every style I create. My passion for bridal hair has only grown since I began. I am constantly expanding my knowledge of different hairstyles and techniques through advanced education from professionals across the globe.

My goal is to work closely with each bride to ensure a special experience from the time you inquire through to your big day!

Hair is my passion. I live and breathe to create with hair. I love the feeling  of being able to make someone else feel pretty or beautiful or just to feel good about themselves. I have been blessed with opportunities to work on dozens of published photoshoots and with some of Toronto’s most established and talented photographers. I have also had the blessing and opportunity to work on an Independent Film and on a couple TV Shows. I was most recently the Key Hairstylist for Top Chef Canada. I love all aspects of hair. There is just something so special about having a person choose you to do their hair for their wedding day. One of the most important days in a persons life. To be invited to be apart of something so special truly is such an amazing feeling.

Although, I do hair in many different capacities, doing Bridal Hair will always be one of my favourite things to do. It’s so special to be able to do hair for someone on their wedding and have your work be in their photos for the rest of the lives. Then to receive such wonderful and kind words of thanks in thank you cards and reviews from Brides, it’s very touching. And even more so, to build not only client relationships with these people but lifelong friendships also. It’s a wonderful career and creative life to be apart of. I am grateful for all of my clients and for all of the amazing opportunities that I have been blessed with. Every time a bride decides that I am worthy to be apart of their special day, I am on a mission to do everything I can to make them the happiest possible with me and my work. Even though this pandemic has caused some set backs for 2020 Brides, 2021 holds a lot of potential and I hope to help a lot of brides and be privileged enough to be apart of many weddings in the coming years.

I’ve always loved painting and for me it was a world that reminded me of that similarity of art and creativity that captures the beauty and glory of what the hair industry represents. Over the years with education and experience I have grown even fonder of this industry as I’ve learned to keep up to date with the latest trends and styles to make my clients feel their absolute best as that being my absolute goal. My work has been displayed in bridal magazines, recognized in the beauty industry and acknowledged by celebrity hairstylists but personally for me my proudest accomplishment and joy comes in that very moment when a client sits on my chair and walks out not only looking absolutely beautiful externally but feels it even more internally. To have my clients share their life, journey and hardships with me is an honor and privilege as it motivates me to keep striving not only to expand and flourish  in this industry but to make a difference in someone’s life. The hard work, the sacrifice and long hours make it all worth it even after so many years.

FAQ – Wedding Hairstylists

How do I communicate what I want to my hairstylist?

The best way to communicate what exact hairstyle you want is by showing photos. Make sure to do your research and find some inspiration on Instagram or Pinterest. Having a clear idea of what you want will make it a lot easier for the hairstylist to find the hairstyle you want and will make the entire process much smoother.

What should I research to prepare for my appointment?

When finding the perfect hairstyle for you, you need to first find some inspiration. This means going on Instagram or Pinterest and finding what other people have done for their wedding and find a hairstyle you can picture yourself in. It is important to find a couple pictures as sometimes the look doesn’t always turn out as you planned. Another thing to keep in mind is the style and neckline of your dress. Do you research about the different styles of necklines and what hairstyles look best paired up with the dress.

With over 20 years of experience in Bridal Makeup Artistry, I have had the opportunity to work with various brides, from different cultures, all with their own unique vision of how they want to look for their big day. This job has taken me to different countries, and allowed me to become such a crucial part of someone’s special day. I work together with my brides to come up with the perfect vision of their Makeup look based on their features, outfits, jewelry, and if they have a theme for their wedding. I specialize in South Asian Bridal Makeup, so we get to create different looks for all the events that take place, which is always so amazing. I have the opportunity to create flawless looks that are both traditional and timeless for a ceremony, to trendy and bold for a reception – giving my brides the best of both worlds. I am obsessed with my brides not only looking amazing, but feeling amazing when they see themselves in the mirror for the first time as a bride. Because of this, I ensure I’m available to them until they are ready to leave for their ceremony. When a bride books her Bridal Makeup with me, they have the comfort in knowing I will be there, by their side the entire time.

Aside from Bridal Makeup, I enjoy creating bold makeup looks on myself to share on my social media. This helps me to not only practice different techniques, but it allows me to keep up-to-date on the latest makeup trends. Makeup has been a passion for me for as long as I can remember, and creating various looks on myself has really helped showcase my talents, continue to learn, and step out of my comfort zone. Combined with my experience and passion, my makeup brushes welcome every bride to come sit in my chair.

We specialize in airbrush foundation. It is our trademark as Airbrush Angels. The art of creating a flawless look is our staple. I can’t even begin to explain how much the art of makeup means to me. Growing up with a skin condition I had my first makeup experience when I was 16 years old and it truly changed and shaped my life. The way I felt after looking in the mirror was magical. When I first opened Makeup Worx and made the decision to work for myself, I never imagined I would stand along such an incredible team of talent 11 years later. We truly love what we do. Making our brides shine and smile is what we live for. 

Through dedication, hard-work, respect and love for our clients, brides and team I am so proud of what we have accomplished together. The mere smile after a grand reveal, the hair toss that signifies an instant confidence boost, and the tears of joy to share that you’ve never felt better. This makes our day as much as it makes our brides day.

FAQ – Makeup Artist

What is a bridal makeup trial?

A bridal makeup trial is where we meet for the first time, chat and go over styles/looks you’ve chosen putting them to the test. You should do your research before coming to a bridal makeup trial by finding several photos of looks you want to try. At the bridal makeup trial, your makeup artist will test out the looks to see whether you like it or not. This meeting can take up to a couple hours since it is the time to really get to know your makeup artist. As well as for the makeup artist to get to know you. Your wedding day is a very important day and you want to look as beautiful as possible, so the makeup artist needs to get to know what you like and what you feel confident in.

How long before the wedding should I book a bridal makeup trial?

You should book the bridal makeup trial around 4-8 weeks before your wedding. Before you book your bridal makeup trial, make sure to have the details of your wedding planned and finalized. This means that you know what your wedding dress looks like, you know the theme of your wedding and the colours of the flowers. This is important because different looks math different colours in your theme. As well as, your bridal gown make a difference as certain makeup looks match better with certain necklines.

Do makeup artists travel to the client for their wedding day?

Most makeup artists offer mobile services meaning they do travel to the client for their wedding day. Check with your makeup artist to see how far they are willing to travel on that day. Some makeup artists even offer mobile services for destination weddings or wedding outside of their city. Although, almost every makeup artist will demand travel fees as is it expensive to travel. Make sure to do your research on different makeup artists to see who is closest or has travel fees that is within your budget. All in all, find a makeup artist that makes you feel beautiful and stress-free.

The complete month-by-month wedding planning timeline

Wedding planning

Only a handful of brides have the unbelievable ability for successful short-term wedding planning. However, if you are like most women, you may take a year or more to sort out all aspects of wedding planning.

So, there is no exact timeline to plan a perfect wedding.

Nonetheless, you need a plan! Even if you are an easy-going bride who somehow gets things done in the nick of time.

If you have already planned a wedding, you will need some direction and guidance on what needs to be done.

Don’t you agree?

So, here is a practical wedding planning timeline and month-by-month checklist of all the different tasks that it involves. Use it as such or as a reference to create your own personalized wedding plan and you simply cannot go wrong.

Note: This wedding planning timeline is created for the “average” engagement period, which is a whole year. However, you can adjust it to divide and conquer all the relevant, tasks even if your engagement is longer or shorter.

When you have 12 months left

Wedding budget
Wedding finances

Freshly engaged and still reeling from the thrill of the beautiful proposal? Indulge yourself in the ecstasy of this milestone chapter in your life, for it happens just once.

Have a party, take a holiday; all you need to celebrate! Then, get down to business!

Start your wedding planning process with the following tasks.

Prepare the Wedding Budget

Weddings are expensive affairs, and this is the right time to discuss finances with your fiancé.

Calculate the maximum amount you can afford to spend. Then, divide the funds into different expenses. Some of the important factors to consider at this point are:

  • Who pays for the wedding? Are your families/other generous relatives contributing? If so, how much will they be paying?
  • What are your priorities—venue, décor, entertainment, food, honeymoon?
  • What tools will you use to jot down and track expenses? Do you prefer the pen and paper route, spreadsheets or a budget planning app?

This useful budget planning tool will help you create an estimate and break it down into different aspects.

Plan the guest list

It is never too early to sort out your guest list as the number of guests will determine important aspects like the choice of venue and food. So, you must have at least a rough idea of how many guests will be attending the wedding.

If your parents are contributing, it is only fair that they also get to invite some guests. Compile the lists from your partner, parents and yourself to get a total headcount. If there are more people than you can afford, this is the time to negotiate and arrive at a reasonable number.

To hire a wedding planner or not

Do you think you are better off entrusting your wedding planning or at least certain aspects of it to a wedding planner? If so, this is the right time to find an event planner.

Hiring a wedding planner is expensive. However, it may be the best option if you cannot dedicate time for wedding planning.

So, weigh your options and if you decide to hire someone, do it right away.

Fix the date, plan the theme and book your venue

Good venues get booked fast. So, don’t delay in making your booking.  

You can either choose a theme and tour venues that match the vibe or pick the venue first and then think of a suitable theme.

Don’t worry about the specifics at this stage of wedding planning. Instead, focus on finding a venue that will accommodate your guest list and falls within budget.

11 months left

Wedding decor

You still have plenty of time left. Tackle the following tasks during this month.

Choose your wedding party members

Don’t wait longer to choose your Maid of Honor, bridesmaids, best man, and groomsmen. Then pop the question to them and finalize your wedding party list.

Look for inspiration

You can now start planning the smaller details of your wedding. Turn to Pinterest, magazines and any other sources that can help you with this task. Prioritize the following tasks during this month:

  • Fixing the colors in your wedding theme
  • Narrowing down your décor and food choices

Work on your wedding website

A wedding website is a brilliant resource that will help you compile and share all relevant information about the wedding, with your guests.

You can inform them about the venue address, wedding day timeline, wedding registry information and even photos using such a portal.

Check out this post on A Practical Wedding website for the essential etiquette rules that you should stick to when designing a website.

Plan your entertainment, food, and décor

The following questions will help you with wedding vendor selection:

  • Do you want a band or DJ for the reception? And are there any specific artists you wish to hire?
  • What type of décor would you prefer? More importantly, think of the floral details you want it will soon be time to choose a florist.
  • What type of food should be served at your wedding? Do you prefer a full four-course meal a buffet? Accordingly, find caterers who can deliver to your expectations.
  • What type of photography do you like most? Read up on the different types of wedding photography styles and choose your favorite. Then look for photographers who specialize in your chosen style, contact them for their prices and move on to the next stage.

Start thinking about your wedding dress

Dress shopping is one of the best parts of wedding planning. However, wedding dress orders typically take six to nine months to be delivered. So, you will have to start shopping for your wedding dress shortly. Make the task easy by preparing for it.

Read up on wedding dress trends and familiarize yourself with wedding dress lingo. There is a ton of information online. So, use the resources at your disposal to become familiar with all that you should know about wedding dress shopping.

Also, use this time to shortlist boutiques that carry gowns in the price range you can afford. You can contact them right away and fix your bridal dress appointment in the coming month.

Vendor selection
Wedding Vendor selection

By now, you should have booked or at least finalized the venue, decided on the type of entertainment, food, and décor you want and have a headcount for guests. Let us now move on to the remaining tasks.

Hire the wedding officiant, caterer, photographer, and other important vendors

Your officiant, photographer, DJ/band and caterer are crucial to creating great memories of your special day. So, it is important that you are comfortable and strike a good rapport with your chosen vendors.

Since good vendors tend to get booked quickly, make your choices quickly. Book a tasting session with the caterer if necessary. Similarly, ask for previous performance records from your DJ and band. You can also consider getting engagement photographs taken, to assess how good your photographer is.

Do your research, make your final decision and put down the deposit. You can then cross this task off your wedding list.

Work on your wedding invitation and send out save-the-date cards

Wedding invitations come in a stunning variety of styles. You can also have custom wedding invitations, but these involve a lot of time and effort. Decide on your preferences and start looking for suitable choices.

If your wedding is during peak season or it is a destination wedding, you can send out save-the-date cards right now or in a month, so your guests have enough time to make plans.

Your wedding is approaching, and it is now time to start planning the bigger (even game-changing) aspects of your wedding day. Let’s find out what they are

Go shopping for your wedding dress

Start your wedding shopping now and you will have ample time to complete the entire process. Not only should you be able to explore your options in different stores but you can also save on rush fees.

If you place your order at least 6 to 9 months before the wedding, you can conveniently schedule alterations and accessories selection. So, book your appointment and get on with it already.

Set up your gift registry

Your guests will begin thinking about gifts as soon as they receive your invitation. So, it will be helpful if your gift registry is set up by then.

To decide what should go on your registry, discuss with your partner about your personal preferences, hobbies and how you expect your lifestyle after marriage to be. Accordingly, plan your wedding registry and register yourself at your chosen retailers.

Also, add your registry information to your wedding website. This is a smart way to pass on the information to your wedding guests.

You are nearing the half-way mark and you should ideally have tackled most of the time-sensitive tasks by now. Nonetheless, there’s a lot of work left to do.

Book rooms for out-of-town guests

Your guests will appreciate it if you can help them plan their stay if they are coming from far. Hotel rooms tend to be full during peak season. So, book your rooms well in advance.

Since your guests will be paying their own bills, it is a good idea to look for hotels in different price ranges. Share the details with them and block the rooms as soon as they confirm.

Contact rental companies

If you must need tables, chairs, music systems, lighting or anything else at the venue, this is the time to take quotes from rental companies and book their services.

Time to look for bridal party outfits

Now that you have placed the order for your own wedding dress, move on to outfits for the rest of your wedding party. Consult your bridesmaids or go with your instincts to choose the color, style, and other details.

Do your research on the places where the dresses are available at reasonable prices. Then book an appointment to explore your options.

Once you shortlist the dresses, you should take your bridesmaids along to see how they look in these dresses. You can then go ahead with placing the order.

Plan your honeymoon

Before you know it, you will too busy to plan your honeymoon. So, plan your honeymoon budget without delay and select a suitable location. Book your accommodation and travel, so that is out of the way.

Book the rehearsal dinner venue

Now is the time to plan the rehearsal dinner. Consult your fiancé to find a convenient venue for the wedding. Also, decide whether you want it to be a casual-style dinner or a formal setting.

Meet your wedding officiant

Some couples prefer to hire a professional officiant to oversee the wedding ceremony. Others keep it casual by asking a family member or friend to do it.

Either way, you should meet with them prior to the wedding and map out the ceremony. Also, check whether all the legal documentation is sorted out.

Arrange transportation

Plan and arrange transportation to and from the venue. Contact cab operators to hire a limo, vintage car or any other form of transportation. This is also the time to look for mini-van rentals, individual cab services or bigger vehicles if you plan to arrange transportation for your guests.

Meet your florist

By now, you should have a good idea of how your wedding décor will be. You should also be aware of the individual bouquets you will need for yourself and the bridesmaids. Share this information with your florist and ensure you are both in agreement regarding the plans.

Collect and start addressing invitations

You will have to send out your wedding invitations next month. However, they will all have to be addressed before posting. This is a time-consuming task. Get on with it while you still have time to breathe. Simultaneously create an RSVP list, as it will help you to mark your guest replies later.

Time for premarital counseling

Order your wedding cake

The wedding cake is a very important aspect of the wedding. And you have so many options to choose from these days. Selecting the wedding cake can be a demanding task since you not only have to choose the right flavors but also pick the design for it.

Get recommendations from friends and family and find a professional wedding cake. Remember that you will have to find time for cake-tasting sessions. It sounds like fun, doesn’t it?

You will also have to attend a meeting or two with the caterer to discuss your design expectations and sign-off on the chosen design.  

Sort out the groomsmen’s outfits

This is also the right time to start looking for groomsmen outfits. If they will be renting their tuxes, they should make the booking now.

Plan the guests’ favors

You want to tie the wedding favors to the theme of the wedding and find those that fit your budget. Explore your options and start negotiating with vendors to find the best choices for your budget. Then place your order.

Some brides prefer DIY wedding favors. If you plan to take this route, remember that it will take time. Dedicate reasonable blocks of time in your calendar to the task, so you don’t end up overworking yourself at the last minute.

Check on your vendors

By now, you should have everything in place for the wedding. You should have hired entertainment, photographer, caterer, florist, transportation, and cake. Confirm your bookings and make sure that there is no confusion regarding the date and schedule with each of them.

Send out invitations

Mail invitations at least six to eight weeks before the wedding. Also, set the RSVP date a month before the wedding. This will leave you enough time to plan the seating arrangement and also to accommodate for any last-minute changes to the guest list.

Create your schedule for the remaining days

You will have your wedding dress fittings, bachelorette party and meetings with vendors in the coming months. Avoid getting overwhelmed with all the activity by setting up a timeline for yourself where each activity is properly spaced out.

Send out rehearsal dinner invites

It is just a few guests at the rehearsal dinner. Nevertheless, you want to get it right as it is a practice for the actual reception. Invite all concerned parties to the event and inform them of how formal it is.

Have your hair and makeup trial

Organize your hair and makeup trial with your chosen hairdresser and make-up artist. It is highly likely that your wedding dress fitting will also be this month if you booked it early. So, plan your hair and makeup sessions in such a way that it coincides with your dress fitting appointment. That way, you can see how the overall look comes together.

Start your wedding dress fittings

You should ideally have your first wedding dress fitting this month and the next one in the coming month. This will leave you plenty of time to get your dress ready in time for the wedding. Confirm your appointment slot and contact the seamstress to schedule your fitting.

Get your papers in order

Six weeks is a good time to apply for your wedding license. If you are getting married abroad, check for legal requirements and ensure the paperwork is taken care of.

Check with your wedding party on their dresses

Your bridesmaids should receive their dresses this month and schedule alterations.

Entrust the task of following up on the progress to your MOH or handle it yourself. Just make sure that nobody is left out and that there are no confusions later.

Review the playlist with your DJ or band. If you have any last-minute ideas or changes to make, you can check with them right away.

In the last few weeks leading up to the wedding, you should be equipped to handle just the final closing details of the wedding tasks. Let us look at what they are.

Plan your seating chart

You should have the complete guest list by the first week of this month. Now that you know who all will be attending, set up the seating chart.

Arrange vendor payments

Whether you will be paying your vendors after the wedding or just before it, make sure that the funds are ready so you can settle the amount as and when necessary. Also, track the expenses to make sure that they are all accounted for and there is no confusion later.

When making payments in cash, entrust the task to a trusted aide who will handle the payment, so you can concentrate on being the bride.

Sort out your accessories

Don’t wait till the day before your wedding to finalize and arrange all your jewelry, accessories and make-up essentials. Put aside a dedicated bag or space in your room where you can neatly arrange them as and when time permits.

This way you will have everything set out when it is finally time to get ready on the wedding day.

Get your emergency wedding day kit ready

Find out all about what your emergency kit should contain in this post. Whether you decide to buy it readymade or collect all the materials yourself, have everything in place at least a week before the wedding.

Attend the final dress fitting and collect your dress

Your wedding dress should be perfect and ready to wear in the week leading up to your wedding. Take your bridesmaid with you to the final fitting, so the consultant can brief her on how to bustle the dress, in case it is required.

Once you collect the dress from the salon, place it in a safe, low-traffic area of your house where it isn’t prone to moisture, insects or stains.

Confirm all arrangements

Cross-check that everything is progressing as per plan with your vendors, wedding party and photographer. Confirm all arrangements and entrust responsibilities to designated wedding party members.

Run the day-of plan with the main crew at your wedding, so they are all aware of when and where to be and what to do.  Also, hand out wedding bands and other items to the responsible members of the wedding party and give them instructions about their responsibilities in this regard.

Pack your honeymoon bag

Since you will most likely be heading off on your honeymoon immediately after the wedding, keep your honeymoon bag ready and packed to go. This should be one of the final tasks to handle, but it is important nonetheless.

Put someone in charge of getting the gown to the cleaners

Your honeymoon cannot wait. However, cleaning your wedding gown cannot wait either.

Assign the task of taking the gown to the cleaners to a trusted bridesmaid, so it doesn’t have to wait till you are back from your honeymoon. Book your cleaning in advance, so the drycleaners have your slot ready. For more details, visit this post.

Make a checklist

It is a good idea to create a checklist for the wedding eve and wedding day and distribute copies to your MOH and best man. Assign relevant tasks to your wedding crew and brief them on their responsibilities.

Make sure that you have very few tasks to handle by yourself, so you can be fully involved in the wedding day activities and enjoy every moment to the fullest.

Break in your shoes and prep for your wedding day

Avoid the discomfort of wearing new shoes by breaking in your shoes during the last few days before the wedding. Also, book yourself a manicure, pedicure and facial to relax, de-stress and look great. This is also the time to touch up your hair color, trim your hair and do all your last-minute beauty prep.

To wrap up…

Follow this schedule when planning your wedding and you will not overlook any aspect. Finally, if things get too hectic or don’t go as per plan, take it easy, sit back and reassess the situation. You will mostly find an alternative solution that works out just as well.

Keep in mind that your wedding day will be over before you know it and it will be a pity if you were too busy to enjoy it.
